Typefaces for the food-obsessed: sachertorte and brownies

Sachertorte_Specimen05For some people, and you know who you are, it’s food, food, food all the time. Which is why you might need this new typeface from Ten Dollar Fonts. It’s called Sachertorte and is influenced by the atmosphere of Vienna. Says designer Eugen Finkel, "It was created as a set of faces suitable for the purpose of display typography, which can induce the modern, elegant look of simplicity inspired by the history. You have just these feelings when you enter the nice cozy coffee shop of Vienna and start cutting the famous Sachertorte.” 

Just found another food-themed font offered by Brownies font the site: Double Chocolate Brownies "baked up especially for your next project! If you want to give it a handcrafted feel, this is the font you need! It's a handwritten font which can be used in many different moods and of course it is delicious!,” says designer Daniela Arnoldo.

At any rate, if, like me, you get bored writing in the same old font, $10 buys your words a whole new Viennese or funky brownie look.

Ten Dollar Fonts offers new fonts from young typography designers, all at $10 for personal use. Discovered via the art and design blog Colossal.
